Diagnosis for U.S. Senate: Severe Constipation
The House of Representatives has passed two hundred and ninety bills (that's 290!!!) which are now stalled in the Senate. Is this what “Majority Rule” is supposed to mean???
How’s this “bipartisanship” working out for us???
Some of the blocked legislation includes bills for:
Health care reform;
Job security for wounded veterans;
Vision care for children;
Improving absentee ballot voting;
and the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.
Had enough yet?
A constipated person doesn’t function very well. Sometimes a laxative is necessary. Exceptionally severe cases (such as this one) might call for a super powerful explosive laxative. The Infamous Forty-One Republican senators — and a few “moderate” Democrats — are the decaying putrifying fecal matter that’s causing this dangerous blockage. The Body Politic is infected, infested, swollen; and needs to be unclogged. Now.
We need to do whatever it takes — reconciliation, executive orders — to get that shit out of the way ASAP.
If this severe problem doesn’t get taken care of NOW, the United States of America could end up having a Mr. Creosote episode. And we wouldn’t want that now, would we?
